Eucalyptus Robusta is a tree growing in swampy or waterlogged soils. It is up to 30 m (98 ft) high with thick spongy reddish-brown bark. Eucalyptus Robusta grows commonly as a straight, upright tree to around 20–30 meters (70–100 ft) tall, with a trunk up to 1 meter (3.3 feet) in diameter.
Its timber makes a good use for firewood, in general construction and for wharves and fencing. The heartwood is extremely durable and also resists marine borers. The weight can vary widely between individuals and stands, averaging 38 pounds per cubic foot.
